Trent Alexander-Arnold Needs 38 Assists In Next 430 Games To Surpass Paul Scholes' Tally

Trent Alexander-Arnold Needs 38 Assists In Next 430 Games To Surpass Paul Scholes' Tally

Trent Alexander-Arnold has only been in a regular in the Liverpool side for just over two seasons now, making 69 appearances in the Premier League, but the right-back is only 37 assists from levelling Paul Scholes' assist tally.

He's still only 21 years of age but Alexander-Arnold's two assists in the 2-1 win over Brighton at Anfield yesterday means he's now on 18 assists in his Premier League career.

Scholes, one of the greatest midfielders in the history of Premier League, wasn't known for being an assist specialist and only set up 55 goals in his 499 outings.

Still, it just shows how deadly Alexander-Arnold is going forward. Since the start of last season, he's assisted a teammate 17 times in the league, with no other player registering more assists in that period.

Under Jurgen Klopp, the academy product has blossomed into arguably the best right-back in world football. He was integral to the club's sixth European Cup triumph last term and is already contributing hugely as the Reds look set to finally win the Premier League this campaign.

His 12 assists in the Premier League last season saw him included in the 2020 Guinness World Records, pipping Everton pair Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines, who both recorded 11 assists in 1994/95 and 2010/11 respectively.
